Factual Allegations

Here, the factual allegations are that the Board of Selectmen (defendant) and other public officials flout long-standing statutes and regulations to post phony speed limit signs.  They then use the phony speed limits as fabricated evidence to con thousands of unsuspecting motorists, like Nick Belezos (plaintiff), into paying bogus fines without a second thought, and to deliberately deceive the overburdened courts of the Commonwealth.  Since neither the motorists nor the courts suspect foul play, they are both defrauded.
